Interracial Marriages On The Rise


>>MORE PEOPLE ARE GETTING
MARRIED TO INDIVIDUALS FROM A DIFFERENT RACE. PEW RESEARCH
JUST CONDUCTED A STUDY WHERE THEY TOOK DATA FROM THE CENSUS
AND FOUND THAT ONE IN SIX NEWLYWED SPOUSES ARE OF A
DIFFERENT RACE OR ETHNICITY. TO GIVE YOU MORE INFORMATION ON
THIS- SO IF YOU ARE YOUNGER YOU PROBABLY THINK WHAT IS THE BIG
DEAL? I HAVE SEEN MIXED COUPLES ALL THE TIME, IT IS PRETTY
COMMON. IF YOU JUST REWIND 50 YEARS, THE NUMBER WAS MUCH
LOWER. INTERMARRIED SOUNDS VERY STRANGE. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE
MARRYING A DIFFERENT SPECIES.>>I AM OUTER MARRIED. WHAT IS
MORE AMAZING IS THAT INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE WAS ILLEGAL IN THIS
COUNTRY IN MANY PARTS. THAT WAS UNTIL 1967. ONLY IN 1967 TO THE
SUPREME COURT SAY IT WAS UNCONSTITUTIONAL TO BAR
DIFFERENT RACES FROM MARRYING ONE ANOTHER. IT BLOWS MY MIND. THEY LIVE IN A DIFFERENT WORLD, THEY HAVE DIFFERENT FACTS AND
REALITY. AND THEIR WORLD GETTING MARRIED TO A BLACK PERSON OR ANY
RACE IS SO OUTRAGEOUS THEY THINK IT SHOULD BE BANNED. WHEREAS IN
LA, NO ONE WOULD BLINK AN EYE OR CARE EVER. IF SOMEONE BELIEVE THE THINGS
THAT THEY BELIEVE, THEY LOOK AT THEM LIKE THEY ARE
MONSTERS.>>SKITTLES IS RIGHT, YOU SHOULD
TASTE THE RAINBOW. DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU ARE INTO BUT I FEEL
LIKE KEEPING – STAYING WITHIN YOUR RACE OR NATIONALITY IS SO
INCREDIBLY BORING. BY THE WAY IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT, DO YOU. BUT I WANT TO LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT FORCES ME TO BE WITH
SOMEONE WHO IS EXACTLY LIKE ME. I GET A LOT OF PLEASURE ABOUT
LEARNING ABOUT OTHER COUNTRIES AND CULTURES. RELATIONSHIP IS
THE BEST WHEN IT IS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE. I FEEL LIKE IF IT IS
SOMEONE THAT COMES FROM THE EXACT SAME CULTURE AS ME THERE
ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT WE UNDERSTAND ABOUT ONE ANOTHER,
BUT GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE. APPRECIATE DIFFERENT
CULTURES AND UNDERSTAND THAT JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE IS A
DIFFERENT RACE OR NATIONALITY DOESN’T MEAN IT IS THE WORST
THING IN THE WORLD. PEOPLE WHO HAVE THIS ACTIVATED FEAR CENTER
IN THEIR BRAINS ARE THE ONES THAT GET TURNED OFF BY THE IDEA
OF INTERMARRIAGE.>>LET ME EXPLAIN ALSO THE OLD
WORLD AND THE NEW WORLD. IN THE OLD WORLD THE REASON WHY THEY
TOLD YOU TO MARRY WITHIN YOUR OWN CLAN WAS BECAUSE YOU WERE
GOING TO FIGHT THE CANAANITES AND YOU NEEDED AS MANY BABIES AS
POSSIBLE WHO WERE ISRAELITES OR PHILISTINES OR WHATEVER.>>YOU HAVE TO MARRY THE PHILISTINES
AND HAVE BABIES WITH THEM.>>THAT IS WHERE THIS WHOLE
TRIBALISM COMES FROM. THAT HAS COME ALL THE WAY UP TO NOW WHERE
PEOPLE STILL FROM THE OLD WORLD THINK YOU HAVE TO MARRY YOUR
SAME RACE. BUT IN THE NEW WORLD WE ARE ACTUALLY ARE MARRYING
WITHIN OUR CULTURES, IT IS JUST THAT OUR CULTURE IS NO LONGER
BASED ON RACE OR ETHNICITY. IN A PLACE LIKE LA OUR CULTURE IS AN
AMERICAN ONE. IT IS MADE FROM TV, ONLINE, MEDIA IS THE
CULTURE. IN THE OLD DAYS OR CULTURE WAS ALL POLITICS AND
MEDIA WAS LOCAL SO YOU MARRIED SOMEONE FROM YOUR HOMETOWN. RIGHT NOW ALL THAT MEDIA AND CULTURE IS NATIONAL AND IN SOME
WAYS GLOBAL. WE ARE ALL PART OF THAT BIG CULTURE. THERE ARE
POCKETS OF SUBCULTURE THAT HAVE NOT CHANGED, HENCE THE ALABAMA
AND MISSISSIPPI REPUBLICAN VOTERS THAT ARE STUCK IN A TIME
WARP. BUT MOST OF US HAVE MOVED ON FROM THAT. AND FINALLY WE ARE WINNING. WE ARE GOING TO WIN, THEY ARE
GOING TO LOSE.>>YEAH, BECAUSE WE ARE MIXING. WHENEVER WE TALK ABOUT HOW WE NEED TO MOVE PAST RACE IN THE
COUNTRY, YOU CAN GET THE GOVERNMENT TO REFORM CERTAIN
THINGS BUT NOTHING WILL WORK QUITE AS WELL AS THE FACT THAT
WE ARE ALL GOING TO HAVE SEX WITH EACH OTHER, PROCREATE, AND
HAVE MIXED BABIES. THE IDEA OF RACE IS GOING TO BE KIND OF
RIDICULOUS.>>WE ARE ALMOST GETTING THERE
FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATION. LIKE ANA SAID NOW IT IS 10%, BUT
AMONG THE PEOPLE GETTING MARRIED TODAY IT IS 15%. WE ARE GOING TO
MAKE MORE PROGRESS AND HAVE MORE INTERMIXING. IF YOU HAPPEN TO
MARRY SOMEONE IN YOUR OWN RACE THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT
AT ALL. JUST FIND THE PERSON YOU LOVE. I KNOW, RADICAL THOUGHT. BUT THOSE GUYS ARE ALL ANCIENT. BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO HELP
THEM. THE REALITY IS WE ARE GOING TO WIN BECAUSE WE ALWAYS
WIN AT THE END BECAUSE WE HAVE PROGRESS AT THE END. RIGHT NOW
IT IS SPEEDING UP.
